After my divorce and before I met my most wonderful husband, I used to drown my sorrows with my friend Jose Quervo. I DON'T ADVISE THAT
The absolute best thing I did was take up the sport of walking. I joined a gym and would walk 3 miles a day there. On my lunch hour I worked next to a Mall and would walk a mile there. I even got up at 5:30am to walk a mile before work!. That was 5 miles a day. times 5 days a week. WOW! Man was I buff! and feeling great. The only bad thing was that I couldn't get enuf of it. I could hardly sit still. It is an adrenaline rushhhhh like drugs.......so buyer beware.
I have bought a treadmill now and no longer have my 105lb buffness. But 10years have past since then too.
I will tread again. and soon. But will do it for my health only, not my mania!
Shopping is another thing I do when I am depressed or bored.. Can you tell I am female?!?!? Its really depressing when you shouldn't be buying because you have other things to do with your money. But, every once in a while I will bring home a new piece of something and thank my husband for it. It makes him happy to see me happy since he is mostly housebound anyway.
Do you have a Church family? I would do more with mine, but I won't because I won't without my husband. You can find alot of good people and a feeling of belonging with your Church or religious family whatever it may be.
